Wookey Hole, Mendip

13th October: with Jake and Tav.

Tav headed to the rift to retrieve a skip and rope while Jake and I went on to the dig at the end of 20. There we continued where we left off last week just using the mattock to loosen the fine sediment, silty sand with some interesting colour bands but no large rocks. When Tav arrived with the skip and rope I set about removing boulders along the skip run using the capping gear.

At the end of the session the skip run was clear, just requires a few skips of sediment to smooth it over, and there was a very large hole where Jake and Tav had been active.

As ever it was very warm, thirsty work!
